Ok. Challenge Accepted.

ISE in T1 ships. Done.

Pretty sure we can manage shuttles next...

It's not that they're too easy, it's that you're not looking at a PUG of New players, nor a group of low-average players, but a TEAM of VERY skilled players there, who work together well and probably have good commo going.

Note that they didn't get the Optional. "Optional Failed" in the little blue box.

Contrast with the guys who need T5 ships with all Borg/MKXII with JUST the right BOFFs-and still fail the mission (Usually,but not always, blaming someone else for their failure.)

Note also, these guys were lined up for the screen-shot, and holding an actual formation. This is akin to watching the Blue Angels over Lake Washington at SeaFair, then claiming that the F-18 is "Too easy to fly".

Match the Accomplishment, THEN you can say the STF's are too easy.

Erm... this may sound very, very stupid, but what is ISE?

(Or a pig)

Sorry if my English is bad.

Infected Space - Elite, an STF mission for 5 players that involves much shooting of the Borg.

.
optional win or not .... for "shuttles" there is no way to bring the generator in the short time down to win optional, the point is you have shown how nuuby the missions are if you do it with normal ships in ~5-6 min where is the challenge

and you show that it can be done with shuttles what have 1-2 weapons.

Good luck doing ISE with shuttles. Seen a youtube vid of a group doing ISN (Infected Space Normal) in shuttles, looked pretty cool, well thought out too with good comms that you could hear.
Be interesting to see a group do ISE in shuttles so good luck


Edit: It was an Ausmonauts vid, so good luck to you on the Elite

Would be interesting to see if you could do a cure space normal, with 4 shuttles and a T1 ship.

Oddly enough, we think Shuttles could be easier, as the Delta Flyer's hull strength scales to the player's rank. At Vice Admiral, it's got more hit points than our Constitutions and Mirandas. Two weapons would be sufficient, assuming we used all buffs and debuffs available to us in combination with the gravitic anchor and tricobalt spam.

The optional however, is basically impossible, as it requires the tactical cube to be destroyed within 15 minutes of the mission start. Shuttles and T1 ships simply don't have the damage potential to pull that off.

That was us. A couple of people in the video were also involved in this one.
